    The first true dinosaur novel!

    There's little I can say about this novel that hasn't already been said. Arthur Conan Doyle is best known for his Sherlock Holmes stories, but if people know him for anything else it is for this, The Lost World, the first true dinosaur adventure novel. The characters are fantastic and memorable. Professor Challenger the braggart, swaggering know-it-all who does ultimately know what he's talking about, suave hunter-adventurer Lord Roxton, who just needs a whip and he'll be a precursor to Indiana Jones, and finally greenhorn reporter Edward Malone, from whose point of view the tale is told. The book takes a while getting to the titular plateau but getting there is half the fun, and when they do finally arrive there's dinosaur attacks, ape-men, all that good stuff. If you like adventure stories and/or dinosaur stories then this is certainly a book to pick up.

    Did the tv series follow the books or did tv take his idea and do there own thing with it? I watched the tv series up until the last season and episode and the finale was left on a cliff hanger before they cancelled the show....was hoping the books could put my heart and mind to ease on how it ends up. Can any one tell me?

    Excellent

    Great book. However, there is too much spacing between paragraphs. Other than that, it's a must read.
